Reportedly, Coca-Cola’s share price dipped by $4bn (£2.8bn) after Cristiano Ronaldo, captain of Portugal national football team removed two bottles of the carbonated drink in front of him as he sat down to speak to the media at Euro 2020 press conference ahead of Group F opener against Hungary, and encouraged people to drink water. Coca-Cola’s share price dropped 1.6 percent almost immediately from $56.10 to $55.22. The market value of the company dropped from $242bn to $238bn, a decrease of $4bn.
Coca-Cola, one of the official sponsors of Euro 2020, replied on Tuesday with a statement that said “everyone is entitled to their drink preferences”, with different “tastes and needs”.
